I used to have a friend. He told me a story of when he was arrested.

The gaurds came around and informed the other prisoners that an old man had been arrested for molesting/killing a baby. There was a particular prisoner who had a baby girl of his own and clearly felt very strongly about it.

The prisoners were sharing cells, and they swapped this guy into the old man's cell. My friend could hear the old man being assulted, and afterwards the gaurds came by and had all the other prisoners sign a statement saying the old man died of natural causes.

Edit: It's a story from a friend of mine. I realize it may not be true but he seemed pretty sincere when he told me. He was being honest at the time about having been charged for requesting sex from a minor, so I don't see why would he bother lying about this.

Walk Hard is one of my favourite movies. Look forward to watching again soon.

It's a story from a friend, but from what I understand the statements were to establish that the old man died on his own, not to establish cause of death.

This wasn't in prison-prison, this was in some transitional/holding area if that matters.

We had a salesman at our workplace who eventually took off to be a professional magician-and I always wondered about when a person takes a leap on something like that and gives up a secure conventional job.

How was your transition from magic as an interest to magic as a career?
